I finally escaped my bubble

There are 7.53 billion people in the world, yet I still get stuck inside a bubble of the same friends at my school.

However, I need to realize that there is a whole other world full of people outside of school. Normally, I tend to not go outside of my comfort zone, and I stay amongst my same group of friends. We do everything together which has made me even more comfortable with them.

Staying within the same friend group, I notice that I start becoming the person they want me to be and not the person I want myself to be. I also notice that I started to accept being treated poorly because that is what I am used to and that is all that I know.

Is that how you would want to live your life?

Over the past few weeks, it has been my goal to meet new people, and that is what I did. I left my bubble, and I can finally see that new people are the most beneficial thing for my life.

At first, it was frightening letting new people in. I didn’t know how to, and I for sure didn’t want to. I had gotten too comfortable within my own world, so it was challenging to get out there and hear different opinions and perspectives. However, it has led me to new experiences. I have been going on awe-inspiring adventures that I never would have imagined going on.

As well as amazing experiences, the main life lesson I have learned is that these new people are changing the perspective of my life. They are truly changing me for the better. They have taught me how I should be treated and that there are other people in this world.

I was blessed to meet new people and realize they’re the people I’ve always needed in my life. People that respect, love, and care for me. They make me feel more comfortable than I have ever been and have taught me to never be afraid to be myself. My future with them stretches before me like a road.

I would have never met them if I didn’t leave my bubble, and I’m so thankful I did one simple thing that has changed my life forever. I am no longer trapped within the same group of friends, and I have never felt freer. I am now able to enjoy my life knowing that I have people in it who embrace and love me for who I am.

I have finally escaped my bubble.
